Everyone will tell you: You need a car seat and a stroller.

No one will tell you: Definitely get the travel system.

Of course you’ll need a stroller to move baby from point A to point B, but a travel system will get you a lot more mileage. Say you’re cruising around town with baby in the backseat, ready to embark on errand number three, and all of the sudden the little guy dozes off. Abort mission, right? Wrong. With a travel system, you’ll be able to slide baby’s car seat out of its base and stealthily snap it in place on your stroller in a matter of minutes -- all without waking your sleeping babe. Sound totally brilliant? That’s ’cause it is!

Try this one: Britax B-Agile travel system, $500, Amazon.com
